A new Tackle It Tuesday Preview for next week's theme. Next week's theme is Aurora Borealis or The Northernlight as seen on the Northpole and Southpole (than called Aurora Australis or The Southernlight)
|The Northernlight or Aurora Borealis|
In northern latitudes, the effect is known as the aurora borealis (or the northern lights), named after the Roman goddess of dawn, Aurora, and the Greek name for the north wind, Boreas, by Pierre Gassendi in 1621. Auroras seen near the magnetic pole may be high overhead, but from farther away, they illuminate the northern horizon as a greenish glow or sometimes a faint red, as if the Sun were rising from an unusual direction. Discrete aurorae often display magnetic field lines or curtain-like structures, and can change within seconds or glow unchanging for hours, most often in fluorescent green. The aurora borealis most often occurs near the equinoctes. The northern lights have had a number of names throughout history. The Cree call this phenomenon the "Dance of the Spirits". In Europe, in the Middle Ages, the auroras were commonly believed a sign from God.
|Aurora Australis or Southernlight|
Its southern counterpart, the aurora australis (or the southern lights), has almost identical features to the aurora borealis and changes simultaneously with changes in the northern auroral zone and is visible from high southern latitudes in Antarctica, South America, New Zealand, and Australia.

It's a phenomenon which I find wonderful ... such nice colors the night's sky gets when this occurs ... really awesome. So the theme for next week's Tackle It Tuesday will be Aurora Borealis, but you also may use of course Aurora Australis. I am looking forward to your contributions next week. Have fun reading this Preview and let your thoughts go over it ...
See you next week for a new Tackle It Tuesday issue.
PS.: By the way ... as a I already had thought ... Aleph ... was a difficult theme so this Tackle It Tuesday on Aleph will be open for another week. For Tackle It Tuesday Aleph you can contribute your haiku 'till August 27th 11.59 PM. Good Luck everyone.
